Chapter 432: The Clown Nangong Wuque
Translator: CatatoPatch Editor: Vermillion
"Ask her to pay for it, she's wealthy," said Nangong Wuque earnestly and calmly.
After he spoke, he still raised his brows as usual and sent a look to Bu Fang that said "believe in me".
Bu Fang was somewhat dumbfounded, and he wondered whether Nangong Wan and this clown were truly siblings as there was a great difference in their disposition.
Nangong Wan was at the very least slightly ordinary, and although she was somewhat cold and aloof, she still revealed an appearance befitting of a young girl when she was conquered by his delicacies.
As for Nangong Wuque, he was just a clown who defrauded his sister.
Nangong Wan's tender lips opened and spouted out that chicken's wing bones, she widened her pretty eyes as she somewhat indignantly looked at Nangong Wuque. Who are you calling wealthy?
That was money which she worked hard to earn by refining elixirs.
"Nangong Wuque, are you courting death?" Nangong Wan spoke while clenching her teeth. She would always be angered when she ran into this brother of her. In the last time, he even intended to recommend her to the Lin Family's eldest young master, Lin Wuying.
Lin Wuying all along viewed Nangong Wuque as his predestined enemy, and this guy unexpectedly wanted to become his brother-in-law.
He truly went too far!
As for this time, he was even more excessive and unreasonable and said something like that to Owner Bu. She didn't even want to imagine the idea.
It was just that the dishes cooked by Owner Bu were too delicious. It was his charm.
You are truly a retard!
"I don't have money." Nangong Wan ignored him and scooped that brown soup, and slightly blew at her before swallowing it.
"Noo... Didn't your older brother just come out of secluded training? I already spent all my crystals, my pretty sister, my beloved sister, pay it for me just this time." As Nangong Wuque smelled the aroma emitted from the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall, he couldn't help but desire it. Its fragrance was sweeter than that of Multi-Taste Fasting Pills.
As he looked at how Nangong Wan forgot her table manners while eating it, he couldn't help but desire it even more.
However, it should be better to not remind her of such fact, as she would surely go out of control if he raised it.
"Just this time? my brother, you already owe me more than a hundred thousand crystals." Nangong Wan truly itched to take the bone on the table and stuff it in that guy's mouth.
She never once witnessed such unreasonable and shameless brother like him.
"Haha... Is it? it seems like you are truly wealthy, and you wouldn't care about adding more to it, just wait until I can refine Two-Mark Spirit Pills. I will make money with them and will surely return to you what I owe you." Nangong Wuque gave out a hollow laugh and patted his chest as he assured her.
"I don't have money... and I don't believe you."
"No.... My dear sister, didn't you see how your brother was fretting over your marriage and helping you?" Nangong Wuque raised his brows and said."
"Hehe... If you say another word about it, don't blame me for thrashing you." Nangong Wan coldly laughed.
"Isn't it just ten thousand crystal? Say, what do you want in exchange for it?"
"Give me one of the recipes of One-Mark Spirit Pill which you got from the Pill Tower. If you aren't willing, then there is no room for discussion," said Nangong Wan.
"Ok, its a deal." Nangong Wuque was taken aback for a moment before he agreed without the least bit of hesitation. He took a worn-out beast skin from his Spatial Spirit Tool and slapped it against the table.
Nangong Wan was stunned by his actions, weren't the Pill Tower's recipes extremely important?
Why did he comply this easily? didn't he fear that this matter would be known by the Pill Tower?
Nangong Wan was quite doubtful.
"Can I truly take it?" Nangong Wan held into that beast skin and looked at Nangong Wuque as she spoke.
"Take it, my sister, is it possible that your brother will deceive you? However, I still must remind that it's extremely dangerous to try refining a One-Mark Spirit Pill without reaching the One Cloud Alchemist level, and if the furnace exploded, it may ruin you fair and tender pretty face," said Nangong Wuque as he raised his brows.
Nangong Wuque further ignored Nangong Wan in front of him, who almost burst with rage, and turned his head around to look at Bu Fang.
"Serve me a bowl of this Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup... You have heard her, this wealthy woman will pay for it."
Bu Fang was slightly dumbfounded by those two siblings negotiations which he just heard.
"Wait for a while."
He calmy spoke before he turned around and went to the kitchen.
As Nangong Wuque looked at Bu Fang's back, his eyes suddenly lit up and he followed behind him and intended to enter the kitchen.
Bu Fang didn't stop and his body quickly disappeared inside the kitchen.
Nangong Wuque was quite curious and was extremely shocked when he smelt the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup's aroma. He noticed that it seemed like it was cooked by using alchemy techniques as the spiritual energy of the ingredients was perfectly preserved.
From the fact that he could achieve such a feat, it was obvious that Owner Bu's alchemy skill was quite high. A technique for processing the ingredients' spiritual energy was extremely precious and important to any alchemist.
He intended to follow Bu Fang into the kitchen because of his desire of seeking the knowledge of such a technique. However, just when Bu Fang disappeared in it, Nangong Wuque suddenly felt an ice-cold aura locking on him.
That aura made his whole body shudder and caused him to have goosebumps.
Nangong Wuque turned his head around and saw that an unwieldy and armored puppet waved its fan-like palm at him and tried to grab him. That puppet, which gave him immense pressure, utterly shocked him. Such feeling was like he was facing an opponent at the same realm as him.
It was precisely because of such a feeling that he was shocked.
He was a Divine Physique Echelon expert who broke through one of Supreme-Being's shackles, if this puppet was in the same realm as him, then didn't this mean that this puppet prowess reached the Divine Physique Echelon?
A Divine Physique Echelon puppet... Wasn't this an object which only the treacherous members of the Puppet Sect could make?
Was this owner from the Puppet Sect? it didn't seem right as those fools from the Puppet Sect would never cook dishes.
A purple glow flickered in Whitey's eyes as its fan-like palm's speed was becoming swifter, and it caused a whistling sound to resound.
Nangong Wuque's aura rose as his true energy surged out of his energy core and covered his palm.
Nangong Wuque and Whitey collided against each other.
Their collision caused airwaves to rise up as a gale swept through the store, however, such gale didn't manage to damage this store.
Nangong Family's body retreated back several steps, and he looked in disbelief at Whitey, who didn't even budge.
"This puppet is... amazing."
"The kitchen is an important place, and unauthorized people aren't allowed in it. Whitey, come back."
When Nangong Wuque was staring at Whitey with his shining gaze, Bu Fang's indifferent and calm voice transmitted from the kitchen and warned him.
Whitey swept Nangong Wuque with its gaze before slowly returning into the kitchen.
Nangong Wuque was disappointed because he failed to enter the kitchen, but he returned to his seat and looked at Nangong Wan, who collected that beast skin and started wolfing down the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup once again. He swallowed his saliva and asked, "My sister, how's its taste?"
Nangong Wan only warily looked at him in response and didn't reply him.
Wuque was somewhat bothered by her attitude. How could his sister ignore her own brother? He was bored to death, so he stood up and started pacing back and forth in the store.
"A Five Stripes Path-Understanding Tree? It's a precious object." Nangong Wuque stood in front of the Path-Understanding Tree and exclaimed in admiration.
He extended his hand and grabbed one of its green leaves.
Whitey, who was in the kitchen, stretched its head out, and a purple glow burst out of its eyes and locked onto Nangong Wuque's body.
Nangong Wuque released that leaf and put on a serious face as he waved his hand at Whitey.
It was truly embarrassing.
After just a short while, Bu Fang finished cooking another bowl of the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup, and he carried it out of the kitchen.
Dazzling rays were emitted from that Buddha on the porcelain bowl.
Nangong Wuque exclaimed in surprise when he saw it. He could finally taste that delicacy.
When Bu Fang put the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup before him, Wuque couldn't wait any longer and hurriedly opened its lid, taking a deep breath of that aroma, which surged out along with spiritual energy, and enjoying it.
The other people who entered the store hurriedly ordered the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup.
"The purchase of my store's Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup is limited to just two bowls each day. Two bowls of it were already cooked, so if you want to taste it, come back earlier tomorrow," said Bu Fang calmly.
His words caused countless peoples to wallow in regret.
"My God! Its taste almost rival that of the Eight Treasure Chicken which that Qian old man is raising."
After Nangong Wuque tasted the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup, he excitedly exclaimed in surprise.
Everyone was stunned by his words.
What? Eight Treasure Chicken?
The Eight Treasure Chicken of the Pill Tower's Three Clouds Alchemist, the great master Qian Zhong?
What did the Young Master Wuque mean by those words? Could it be that...
Nangong Wan seemed to think of something, and she widened her eyes as glared at Nangong Wuque, saying in a somewhat sharp tone:
"Nangong Wuque... be frank with me, you didn't leave the Pill Tower earlier, you were only driven out by the great master Qian, weren't you? Were you driven out because you slaughtered his Eight Treasure Chicken?"
Nangong Wuque's whole body stiffened, and he held a boar trotters and started eating it. He shook his head like a rattle-drum. Even if he was beaten to death, he wouldn't acknowledge it.
As Nangong Wan looked at his current state, she immediately knew the truth of this matter, and she couldn't help but start rubbing her forehead.
My God, why didn't the great master Qian beat this guy to death?
The Eight Treasure Chicken was a precious Divine Beast, and it was raised by the great master Qian for countless years, and in the end, it was eaten by this guy... What grudge did he have against him?
"I truly didn't eat it, I just chopped one of its wings... I didn't kill it. If he nurse it for some months, its wing will grow once again. Moreover, the great master Qian is still in secluded training, and he didn't hear about this matter, so he didn't drive me out. I slipped away by myself," mumbled Nangong Wuque, whose mouth was filled with food.
Nangong Wan coldly looked at him out of the corners of her eyes.
While Bu Fang's eyes slightly lit up. Eight Treasure Chicken? That was an excellent ingredient... It was a tenth grade Divine Beast, and moreover, it didn't have any fighting prowess or offensive ability. Its whole body was made out of precious essence, and if it was cooked using some special ways, then it would truly be a peerless delicacy.
Furthermore... that Eight Treasure Chicken's wings could still be used as ingredients for the Heavenly Grade Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup.
What Bu Fang was cooking now was just the Mortal Grade Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup, and there was a great difference between it and the more difficult Heavenly Grade Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup, as after all, the ingredients needed for them were completely different.
Since the Pill Tower had such a precious ingredient as the Eight Treasure Chicken, it seemed like if he had some free time, he must go and borrow one of its wings.
While Bu Fang was pondering, the other customers ordered some dishes after they came back to their senses, and although the Buddha Jumps Over The Wall Soup wasn't available now, there were still the Sweet 'n' Sour Rib and the Egg-Fried Rice.
They once witnessed Nangong Wan eating the Egg-Fried Rice, so they were quite confident in it. They all ordered the Egg-Fried Rice.
Bu Fang returned to the kitchen once again and started cooking.
He still didn't sell any plates of the Sweet 'n' Sour Rib which Blacky was fond of.
Countless fragrant bowls of Egg-Fried Rice were carried out of the kitchen. Their fragrances filled the whole Cloud Mist Restaurant and caused it to become covered in steam.
When all people were heartily eating, two people imposingly charged toward the store.
